Alright, time to be true to oneself, face the music, admit defeat : I love weddings.
Regardless of my views about marriages, I love the traditions/ceremonies/organizations/preparations/gossip/laughs/bright clothes/ sweets/music/and most of all the crafts of weddings. I have have been at my friend Sham's Holud/Henna ceremony that started at 3pm and ran till 2 am, and I'm still pumped!
Weddings bring out the best(ceremonies,arts,music) and sometimes worst(tardiness,fights,bad food) of our culture. Romance of the union of two people is there, but at south-asian weddings it tends to take back seat. Though Sham was really cute and romantic when he showed up at his bride's Mehdi from the night before with a rose and walked up to the stage to give it to her and then took off.
Turns out I AM a wedding planner at heart but who also loves to sit around with friends and laugh at the tacky clothes,funny aunties checking you out,inside jokes and general nuisance of things. I'm tireless, happy and at my prime at weddings - other people's ofcourse :D
